CHANNING Tatum thinks his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum is "tough as nails".

The 33-year-old actor and the 32-year-old actress, who tied the knot in 2009 after meeting on the set of the movie 'Step Up' in 2006, welcomed their first daughter, Everly, into the world in London three weeks ago, and the 'White House Down' star revealed that she is a natural mother.

Speaking about the brunette beauty on 'Good Morning America' on Tuesday (25.06.13), Channing said: "She's good, I mean, she's tough as nails.

"Those first few weeks are hard but she's just swimming through them."

Despite being sleep deprived, the Hollywood heartthrob also revealed that he didn't realise how exciting parenthood would be.

He explained: "I've never been so excited when something poos, like, I just get so amped up, because it's like, 'I'm in the game now'.

"Mom does so much of the early work in those first few weeks that I'm like, 'Put me in the game, put me in the game'.

"I've gotten so good at changing diapers, swaddling and getting her back before she cries."

Channing also opened up about his bond with his co-star Jamie Foxx, who he instantly became firm friends with on the set of their new movie.

He said: "In the movie we're two people, that are from two completely different worlds, that ultimately end up understanding each other, but in real life me and Jamie got on the first minute we met each other. We're both southern boys so it was just easy."
